Why should you join BCE?
If you want to work with colleagues who are hard-working, collaborative, and take pride in their work then BCE is the firm for you. BCE managers are at the center of what the firm does. You will work directly with partners, principals, and analysts to deliver insights and advice to BCE’s clients. We invest in our managers to ensure continued professional development, and the manager role is the first step in the path to our senior staff. In addition, BCE offers managers exposure to a variety of industries and functional practices. Client interaction is part of the experience from day one as you develop your skills and interests to progress your career.
What types of candidates does BCE look for when hiring managers?
We are looking for ambitious graduate degree holders who want to work alongside the best and brightest colleagues to solve the toughest client challenges. We are a premier destination for candidates with MBAs from top tier U.S. business schools, and we are committed to finding the best talent from doctoral, non-business master’s, legal, and medical programs.
Our managers are at the center of our engagement success, and BCE requires these leaders to be intellectually curious, creative thinkers and doers, who can leverage the skills and knowledge developed at graduate school and in the business world.
Ultimately, we are looking for leaders. Our managers assume a lot of responsibility across the project delivery process. You will influence not only those analysts assigned to your engagement team, but also the senior staff with whom you work, and ultimately our clients’ path forward. If you are someone who can motivate a team, effectively provide feedback, and help others develop new skills, we want to hear from you.
We are also looking for learners. BCE managers do not operate independently, but as part of larger engagement teams that will include principals and partners. As such, you will benefit from senior leadership feedback on your client deliverables, management approach, and most importantly, your own professional development.
What is a BCE manager’s career path?
Our managers receive hands-on skill training, structured professional development, and mentorship from principals and partners. We want our managers to thrive at BCE over the long term, and the career path for successful managers is promotion to principal, followed by partner, and finally senior partner.
